Star Plus to bank in on the 'God woman' genre and finalizes the cast of its show, 'Nastik'.

The show has an array of female actresses..

The Colors drama, ‘Devanshi’ was certainly an underdog when launched earlier this month. The show, though not featuring in the prime-time slot and not having ‘big names’ has managed to find its place in the rating charts and is gradually growing with time.

And we reported about Star Plus, who is on a spree when it comes to introducing new shows, is gearing up to present another show based on an atheist girl. The show is tentatively titled ‘Nastik’ and has already roped in an array of actresses which include Manasi Salvi, Pallavi Rao, Anita Kulkarni, Palak Jain, Lilly Patel and Supriya Sarna and actor Vivek Mushran.

Apart from this huge ensemble cast, the show’s leads include debutante Tina Philip and actor Kanwar Dhillon, best known for his roles in ‘Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha Season 2’ and ‘Piya Rangrezz’.

With the process of casting in its final period, the show has now roped in actress, Sharanpreet Kaur who is making her full-fledged fiction debut apart from starring in several episodics.

The actress will be playing the role of Guru Maa, the antagonist, who will be at constant loggerheads with the female lead of the show.

As the name suggests, Guru Maa will be a character similar to a ‘god woman’ who is also the central character.

It seems this NEW genre of playing ‘god woman’ will now be trending sooner rather than later.

The casting for 'Diya Aur Baati Hum 2' begins in full force; here are the names.

Season 2 is definitely happening.

‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ got its viewers saddened when the news of the show going off-air was out. After a five year stint, the show shut shop in September.

And just when the sad news was sinking in, happiness followed with the show makers announcing a second season. This piece of news became much more believable, when actor Avinesh Rekhi, best known for his role in ‘Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon’ was roped in to play the lead role.

The show is now working on its casting process in full force. Actors Kabeer Kumar, who is best known for his role in ‘Tum Hi Ho Bandu Sakha Tumhi’ and debutant Mayank Arora have been roped in to play pivotal roles in the show.

Kabeer and Mayank will be playing the roles of the deceased Sandhya (Deepika Singh) and Suraj’s (Anas Rashid) sons, Vansh and Ved respectively.

Several big offering for Star Plus are being lined up where it seems to blending the best of both worlds. Commercial biggies like ‘Chandra Nandini’, ‘Meenu Mausi’ and ‘Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil along with content driven TV movie styled, ‘P.O.W’. And now, ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum 2’ also makes it to the list.
